The "new" Coney Island has arrived!
A new topless bar complete with stripper pole and private theme rooms has opened one floor below the offices of Community Board 13 and down the block from P.S. 90 in Coney Island – but no one seems to be batting an eyelash.
Open for about a month, the Foxy Gentleman’s Club at 1201 Surf Avenue advertises table-side dancing, VIP rooms and “beautiful show girls.” A red neon sign over the entrance on West 12th Street depicts the provocative silhouette of a nude woman on her knees – just feet from the sign directing the civic-minded to the offices of Community Board 13.
Public School 90, as well as the JASA Luna Park Senior Center and Luna Park Houses, are located just down the block.
